Caardvarks Sketchfest #2

My card for Caardvarks` Sketchfest`s Monday sketch:


I hope that I`ll never need one, but I thought this would be a proper sympathy card. The sketch reminded me of this, I don`t know why, maybe because of the edge in the right corner? I never created a sympathy card before, it`s really difficult!

The stamp on the background and the pearls are Hero Arts, the boarder stamp is Fontwerks by Karen Russell, the other stamps are Stampers Anonymous by Tim Holtz.

Have a happy Monday everybody!

Hugs,
Vanessa

This is beautiful Vanessa, a lovely colour combo and elegant stamped images. Sympathy cards are difficult but I always think they are worth that little bit of extra effort as they convey so much. Jo x
